Some folks call this a salad, and some folks serve it as a dessert. Since it has jello and cottage cheese, pineapple and cool whip, you can call it whatever you like. I serve it as a salad because it has more “salad” than “dessert”, me thinks.
You need four ingredients, and you can use low fat, no fat, and sugar-free if you’d like. Or use the 4% fat and the jello with sugar. It’s your choice.
Dissolve the jello (sugar-free or regular) in the pineapple and juice. Add the cottage cheese and cool whip (low fat or regular), then chill until set. It’s ready to go. How simple is that?! This really is a cool and refreshing salad but it works well at any time of the year.
